Nancy Drew Season 1 Episode 3 – TV Review

Seriously, this place never has any customers. Who aren’t murder victims or ghosts, at least.

Imagine this sloppy mess of an episode being the one that airs the same week that it’s announced the show has gotten picked up for a full season.

Between this, Legacies, and dear God poor Riverdale, I have to wonder what the fuck is happening over at The CW.

Just keep Dynasty inside the protective salt circle, though, and I’m willing to endure it.

Riverdale Season 4 Episode 3 – TV Review

It’d be rough, bitch.

About halfway through this episode I realised I’d finally fucking had it, and had decided I’d be throwing Riverdale into the Discontinued pile where it belongs (and, if we’re being honest with ourselves, has belonged for a long time).

But Betty, her radiant self, has brought me to a compromise: I’m only going to cover her from now on.

No more Archie and his gym/community centre bullshit. No more Veronica and her relentless, eye-rollingly ridiculous mafia crap. And now with Jughead at some arbitrary private (and apparently boarding?) school, no more of that shit, either.

Just Betty being the only character left on this show with a shred of empathy.

And Chad Michael Murray with his shirt mostly off. Let’s not forget about that.

Dynasty Season 3 Episode 2 – TV Review

This shit is hot, is what I’m saying.

With Kirby and Culhane stalling, Dynasty’s hottest couple again comes back to Fallon and Liam. The comedy scenes also in this episode just make them even better.

Glad to see while the Schwartz/Savage empire falters with Nancy Drew (and straight-up sucks with Looking For Alaska), that Dynasty is keeping the flame burning.

Because it’s hot? I don’t know a lot of metaphors.

Nancy Drew Season 1 Episode 2 – TV Review

I can see why you retired, now.

Also, you call that a mugshot?

Anyway, onto less exciting things than Tatianna merchandise. Did you guys see this week’s Nancy Drew?

Riverdale Season 4 Episode 2 – TV Review

I mean, I ain’t mad, dog. But this is a bit much.

Don’t let the gratuitous Mad Dog abs and lingering evil cult drama fool you: there is a tiny smidge of emotional character interactions, and some high school hijinks, hiding in this episode.

Riverdale may one day soon be its former, Season 1 self.

Don’t you want to believe?

Dynasty Season 3 Episode 1 – TV Review

There’s not a whiff of soccer anywhere in this episode, so I’ll take that as a cautious good sign.

Also a cautious good sign: a change of showrunner (and the new distraction for Schwartz/Savage of Nancy Drew) has not killed Dynasty yet.

And as much soapy fun as a plastic surgery-induced recast was last season, we’ve now evolved to a straight-up recast with Daniella Alonso on the scene as Cristal 2.0, 2.0.

Long may Dynasty reign.

Nancy Drew Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

We need some characterisation, now.

Firstly: Maggie Lawson in all her TV movie glory will always be my favourite Nancy Drew, so let’s just make that perfectly clear.

Or Veronica Mars, if we’re not going literal.

But this Nancy Drew? Ya bland, baby.
